A property pole is a pole within your property’s boundary that supports the overhead powerlines to your home or other buildings. These poles are usually made of timber or steel. Property poles belong to the property owner and so the maintenance of these is the responsibility of the property owner.
Because our tradesmen are experienced, qualified electricians, we can offer expert advice. We can offer solutions to keep your poles and cables working safely and compliant to standards.
Because we have our own cherry pickers (EWPs), 6 Ton Excavator and pole standing machinery, we can get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Maintaining your property poles
For safety reasons and to prevent power interruptions, it is important to regularly check and maintain power poles.
Over time, the base of the pole can deteriorate through decay, termite damage or rust. These can cause the pole to lean or fall over, and potentially cause injury to people or damage to property. A fallen pole may also bring down the powerline supplying electricity to your property.
This is not only dangerous, but will also interrupt the electricity supply to your home.
How to check, what to look for and what to do?
- Never climb a power pole or come within 3 metres of power lines – always inspect poles & cables from the ground at a safe distance.
- Regularly inspect around the base of the pole for signs of decay, termites, rust or other damage.
- If your pole has a cross arm, look at it from the ground and check that it appears to be in good condition.
- If you have any concerns about the condition of your property pole, contact All Terrain Power. We will check the pole and provide you with a quote for any repairs if necessary.
